We’re invested in creating a hybrid culture headquartered in Redwood City, CA. We’re currently looking for teammates who are excited about working in person 2-3 days a week with peers who are passionate about their work and the problem we’re solving.
The problem space for no-code/low-code platforms is complex, and helping people maximize the power of those platforms is equally complex. As a member of the Developer Experience Engineering team, you’ll work on projects that support and enhance our Builder Studio, steer growth of the platform, and help us and our users better understand their experience with the Airkit through data and education. If you’re someone who’s obsessed with UI/UX, you may work closely with Design to architect improvements to our WYSIWYG editor or create seamless experiences using design systems. If you’re intrigued by full-stack development, you might work on data integrations, scalability and performance. If you’re drawn to user research and fast-paced experimentation, you may work on onboarding and growth initiatives.
The way companies build software is changing. As an Engineer at Airkit, you’ll be part of a stellar team at a high-growth startup that’s a driving force for that change, which means that you’ll be focused on building the best developer experience for other engineers – and opening the door for a new class of builders at the same time.
You take pride in the products you build, and are overjoyed when your users meet and exceed their goals.
You employ a collaborative spirit to create deep partnerships with your Design and Product partners, and your curiosity for how things work makes you a skillful problem solver.
You believe that great Design can change the world, especially when coupled with your execution skill.
You value autonomy and opportunities to propose bold new ideas.
You thrive in a culture that loves to share and learn from each other.
You’re good at managing your own work and deadlines, and enjoy opportunities to lead or mentor others.
You’re comfortable working in a fast-paced, iterative environment and are excited to be part of a high-growth startup.
You’re comfortable operating in ambiguity, and are able to be flexible and make decisions in times of uncertainty.
